"In the present day cricket, the game follows lights (floodlights). Without lights the stadiums, though with world-class facilities, does not get big matches. Hence we have decided to floodlit the stadium and I am sure it will not be too long before big time cricket comes here," Dungarpur said at an official welcoming function for the ICC's anti-corruption and security unit (ACU) delegates, who are in Mumbai for a three-day seminar.
Welcoming the ICC representatives, Dungarpur said, "CCI is proud to host the ICC meeting for the second time within a year and hope we will continue to do so in the future as well".
"Brabourne Stadium is one of the best in the world with a picturesque back drop and I can assure you gentlemen (delegates) that when we host big time cricket again, like we did in the 60s and 70s, there will be no match-fixing scandals but still you are welcome to watch some fine cricket and enjoy the hospitality of the club," he added in a lighter vein.
The chief investigator and the ICC ACU's general manager, Jeffery Rees said it has been a fantastic experience for him and his colleagues during their visit to India.
"The hospitality and the love of Indians have to be experienced to be believed and once again I appeal to the reporters that we can't discuss anything about the seminar as we are bound by certain rules and regulations," he added.
